Theatre and The Rural

release date: Jun 29, 2016
Theatre and The Rural
How has theatre represented the rural? And how does a re-viewing of theatre of and in the rural help to build and complicate our sense of place? Theatre & the Rural explores the different ways in which theatre has performed the rural from the medieval to the contemporary, and examines the changing relationships between place, performance and audience when theatre is staged in rural communities. The book argues that theatre has a key role to play in both producing and potentially changing understandings of the rural, challenging dominant views of the relationships between city and country which can affect the political, social and cultural lives of the nation.

The Secret Life of People

release date: Nov 22, 2019
The Secret Life of People
What makes us human? Sadly most people hide the most interesting and helpful of these things away. We walk around with facades in place of who we believe people will like, respect, and love. We pretend to be what we are not. In so doing we are losing touch with our own humanity, and progressively, individually and as societies, moving farther and farther away from who and what we really are. This book delves into the dangers of this.It explores reality and the things that hurt and hinder humanity. The things that if we finally begin to consider could save ourselves and the world we live on if we would only take the time to ponder them. No holds are barred in the examination of mental aberration, societal aberration, the things that people prefer to pretend not to see in the world and also inside themselves. It suggests ways that logic and conscious acceptance of fact can change the things that we hide in the shadows.

Eating on the Wild Side

release date: Jun 04, 2013
Eating on the Wild Side
Winner of the 2014 IACP Cookbook Award in the category of "Food Matters." The next stage in the food revolution--a radical way to select fruits and vegetables and reclaim the flavor and nutrients we''ve lost. Ever since farmers first planted seeds 10,000 years ago, humans have been destroying the nutritional value of their fruits and vegetables. Unwittingly, we''ve been selecting plants that are high in starch and sugar and low in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants for more than 400 generations. EATING ON THE WILD SIDE reveals the solution--choosing modern varieties that approach the nutritional content of wild plants but that also please the modern palate. Jo Robinson explains that many of these newly identified varieties can be found in supermarkets and farmer''s market, and introduces simple, scientifically proven methods of preparation that enhance their flavor and nutrition. Based on years of scientific research and filled with food history and practical advice, EATING ON THE WILD SIDE will forever change the way we think about food.

Jackie's War

release date: Jan 01, 2013
Jackie's War
With German bombs falling on Dover, England, in 1940, my parents did what thousands of other families did: send their children out of harm''s way to a foreign country. Wales had its own language, its own culture and its own peculiar ways. My brother and I were to live far away from home for the better part of the next five years, while a war was being fought. That alone was wrenching enough for a six-year-old. To add to the chaos, all too often those with whom we were sheltered, and who were supposed to be our protectors, turned out to be predators. After growing weary of living in fear, I decided that from then on I would respond to abuse with something more suited to me - anger. Rebels are not born; they are shaped by the world around them. To escape the memories of the evacuation, and the family that I could no longer relate to or communicate with, I chose distance as a solution and left England to migrate to Australia, where I eventually met someone who''d escaped from the country that had caused the destruction of my childhood - a German, long considered the ''enemy'' and now to become family!

Echoes of Narcissus in the Gardens of Delight

Echoes of Narcissus in the Gardens of Delight
Donna thought that there was something wrong with her. That she was suffering from a mental illness that had caused her husband to despise her, distance himself from her, and cheat on her. She blames herself for the desolate, miserable thing that is her marriage and her life. Then she comes across a book that will change everything for her, and reading it, she discovers that there''s nothing wrong with her mind at all, but that there is something very wrong with her husband instead. Marco, she realises, is a malignant narcissist. A textbook case. He has a real and documented mental disorder, and he''s been controlling, manipulating, and abusing her for decades. The sudden full knowledge of all that he''s purposely done to her enrages her. Not sure how to leave after thirty years of what she finally knows has been intentional mental and emotional abuse from him, believing that she has nowhere to turn, and also being physically isolated, she bides her time. Then she meets and befriends a group of unusual people who share her passion for gardening, and so begins her journey to escape. She joins her new friends in their project to assist elderly people in old age homes care for their small gardens, as well as secretly supplying those suffering from painful and terminal illnesses with medicinal herb and plant remedies. As weeks go by, she delves into her memories, relearns what it is to be respected, liked, and loved again, and slowly she formulates a plan to safely leave her dangerous husband. But unbeknownst to Donna, Marco is in serious trouble, has desperate plans of his own, and absolutely no regard for her safety. ** This is a work of fiction, but malignant narcissists really do exist, and it is a recognised mental illness. Unfortunately, many people never realise that they are involved with a narcissist, because their actions are so demonically bad as to be unimaginable and unbelievable, and so they spend their lives in misery, depression, fear, and isolation. If only by the accidental reading of a fictional story, I hope that this book will help even one person, unknowingly suffering narcissistic abuse, to realise that they don''t have to, and that it''s never too late to start over, be happy, be fulfilled, to love and care for yourself, and be truly loved and respected by others.

Pasture Perfect

release date: Jan 01, 2004
Pasture Perfect
Jo Robinson''s new book Pasture Perfect explains the far-reaching benefits of choosing meat, eggs, and dairy products from animals raised on pasture. Drawing on five years of research, Robinson explains that products from grass-fed animals are safer and more nutritious than conventional ones, and why raising animals this way is also better for the environment. What''s more, the animals live low-stress, more natural lives. Chickens are free to graze on greens, scratch for insects, enjoy sun baths, and roost in comfort. Cattle, bison, dairy cows and lambs are truly contented as they graze on green pasture, breathe fresh air, and stay on the farm from birth until market.Robinson is the first to gather all the scientific evidence proving that pastured products are safer and more nutritious. As readers will learn, meat from grass-fed animals is free of hormones, antibiotics and mad cow disease. It is also higher in Vitamin E, beta-carotene, omega-3 fatty acids, and the newly discovered cancer-fighting fat called "CLA." Eggs and dairy products from pastured poultry and dairy cows have similar benefits.Pasture Perfect does more than explain the benefits of pastured products—it also helps you locate, store, and cook them. You will appreciate the 60 pages of recipes that are designed to bring out the tenderness and flavor of this highly nutritious, environmentally friendly food.Accurate and carefully referenced, Pasture Perfect is the definitive book on this greenest of industries.

The Phyto Factor

release date: Jun 30, 2013
The Phyto Factor
Destined to forever change the way we look at fats in our diet, The Aphrodite Diet, by an internationally acclaimed expert in nutrition, debunks the theory that all fats are bad for us, proving that eating a balanced diet of the right fats is the key to good health, longevity and weight loss. The Aphrodite Diet is inspired by the food eaten in Mediterranean countries which is naturally more healthy. There are two families of fatty acids, Omega 3 and Omega 6, and obtaining the ideal balance between these two is the key to good health. The diet we eat in the UK is far too rich in Omega 6 (eg. corn and sunflower oil, margarines and most packaged snacks and convenience foods) and too low in good Omega 3 (eg. fish, walnuts, flaxseeds, green leafy vegetables and canola oil). By changing the balance of these two fats in the diet, and introducing more vegetables and fruit instead of cereals and other starchy foods, The Aphrodite Diet decreases your vulnerability to heart disease, cancer, obesity, diseases, allergies, diabetes and depression. Unlike other nutritional plans it''s not only easy-to-follow but also delicious and includes simple yet tasty recipes and a comprehensive 3 Week Menu to help you get started.

Ethical Issues and Practical Barriers in Internet-based Suicide Prevention Research: a Review and Investigator Survey

release date: Jan 01, 2020
Ethical Issues and Practical Barriers in Internet-based Suicide Prevention Research: a Review and Investigator Survey
Abstract: Background People who are at elevated risk of suicide stand to benefit from internet-based interventions; however, research in this area is likely impacted by a range of ethical and practical challenges. The aim of this study was to examine the ethical issues and practical barriers associated with clinical studies of internet-based interventions for suicide prevention. Method This was a mixed-methods study involving two phases. First, a systematic search was conducted to identify studies evaluating internet-based interventions for people at risk of suicide, and information pertaining to safety protocols and exclusion criteria was extracted. Second, investigators on the included studies were invited to complete an online survey comprising open-ended and forced-choice responses. Quantitative and qualitative methods were used to analyse the data. Results The literature search identified 18 eligible studies, of which three excluded participants based on severity of suicide risk. Half of the 15 suicide researchers who participated in the survey had experienced problems obtaining ethics approval, and none had encountered adverse events attributed to their intervention. Survey respondents noted the difficulty of managing risk in online environments and the limitations associated with implementing safety protocols, although some also reported increased confidence resulting from the ethical review process. Respondents recommended researchers pursue a collaborative relationship with their research ethics committees. Conclusion There is a balance to be achieved between the need to minimise the risk of adverse events whilst also ensuring interventions are being validated on populations who may be most likely to use and benefit from them (i.e., those who prefer anonymity). Further research is required to obtain the views of research ethics committees and research participants on these issues. Dialogue between researchers and ethics committees is necessary to address the need to ensure safety while also advancing the timely development of effective interventions in this critical area
